When the world wants you to hold on and wait, sometimes you change your plans and go with your heart. That’s exactly what happened when this couple switched from a large Maryland wedding to a Virginia micro wedding. The results amid Coronavirus are gorgeous, intimate, and filled with gorgeous, blue hues.

Why have a Virginia micro wedding?

Having a Virginia micro wedding has become more and more common. Due to the pandemic—and the back and forth of COVID regulations—many couples have had to change their plans. With caps at 10, 25, and 50 people at various stages, micro weddings have been a must. Although many events have scaled back to be more intimate, the results are still gorgeous as this lovely day proves.

We talked to the bride, Faith, to get her perspective on the changes she and her now-husband, Brian, had to make. Even when things are unsettling during the planning phase, keep in mind that the purpose is your union. Celebrating in an intimate way with close family can make for a gorgeous special day.

Faith’s Words on Having a VA Micro Wedding

What plans did you have to change to still have a wedding during COVID?

When Brian, my now husband, and I first heard the news of Covid in March, we had a brief moment of panic. As our big wedding day drew nearer, we realized the world most certainly would not be normal by the end of May. Our dreams of a big wedding celebration on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with family and friends was most likely was not going to happen.

After thoughtful prayer and consideration, Brian and I knew that we still wanted to become husband and wife on our original wedding date. I got in touch with our photographer and told her of our plan, or lack thereof. We wanted to get married but had no idea how to quickly make that happen.

She effortlessly came up with the perfect plan. We were to get married at her childhood home in Virginia with our parents, Maid of Honor, and Best Man as our witnesses. Our photographer helped find an officiant, florist, and hair and makeup artist to turn our plan into a reality.

While we knew we wanted to get married now, we also knew that the dream of a big wedding was something we weren’t ready to give up. So, we contacted our original vendors to set up a new wedding date. We are still planning to have our big wedding celebration in May of 2021 with all of our family and friends.

In a way, we did postpone our wedding. All of our original vendors held a new date for us in 2021. But as Brian and I prayerfully considered our options, we knew that waiting until this new date wasn’t something we wanted.

We’d been planning our wedding for nearly two years. After that long of an engagement, we couldn’t imagine extending it any longer.

How did your wedding vendors react to the changes?

Our vendors graciously worked with us to find a new date where everyone was available. Brian and I had spent so long picking vendors that could also envision our dream wedding. Making sure all of them had availability on the same date was essential.

 

“It became truly evident that God’s plan is much greater than anything we could have hoped for or planned ourselves.”

Unfortunately, our wedding coordinator was no longer able to do our new date. She kindly released us from our contract with no additional fees.

What pandemic precautions did you take with your Virginia micro wedding?

Our ceremony was small and intimate. Our parents, Brian’s brother, and my best friend were the only ones in attendance. These were all people we had been around and spent time with throughout quarantine. With the entire wedding taking place outside, we did not practice social distancing.

What were the pros and cons of having a micro wedding?

I’m the girl that has dreamed of my wedding since I was a small child. The wedding I envisioned had absolutely all of the people near and dear to me in attendance. So, when we first decided to move forward with our small and intimate wedding, we knew we needed a plan for a celebration with all of our family and friends at a later date.

Looking back, Brian and I both agreed that while the day was absolutely perfect, we did miss sharing it with some of our closest family and friends.

To my surprise, a smaller wedding releases so much of the pressure. There weren’t hundreds of eyes on Brian and me. Because of that, we were able to enjoy so much time just the two of us, taking in our first moments together as husband and wife.

I wouldn’t change a thing about our experience. We truly get the best of both worlds—a small intimate wedding and a big celebration!

Did you learn anything while shifting to a Virginia micro wedding?

The season leading up to our marriage was a lot harder than either of us expected, but that hardship taught us both one of the biggest life lessons. It became truly evident that God’s plan is much greater than anything we could have hoped for or planned ourselves. We found so much peace as we slowly learned to live in expectant hope of God’s plan for us.

While the pandemic changed our plans, it changes nothing about God or His love. And truly, our wedding was more beautiful, more intimate, and more perfect than any plans we could have made on our own. A change of plans was the perfect plan.

What are you doing about a honeymoon?

Our honeymoon plans to go to Hawaii did have to go on the backburner. Instead, we sat poolside at our new home for a full week. Like our wedding, it certainly wasn’t the honeymoon we had planned. However, it was the perfect start to our forever together. No distractions, no other people, just the two of us. Thankfully our trip to Hawaii was fully refunded.
